One of the biggest fitness conventions in the U.S. happened over the weekend. The IDEA Fitness World Convention was in Los Angeles, bringing together fitness experts and enthusiasts from all over the country. I, unfortunately, was not able to make it this year, but that didn’t stop me from keeping up with the #ideaworld hashtag and @IDEAfit Twitter handle for the past few days to see all the fun I missed. Although I couldn’t be there in person, I’d like to think I was there in spirit, getting to experience the event through the eyes of the attendees and presenters on social media.
For my fellow fitness instructors that weren’t able to make the trip, I pulled together some of my favorite tweets and quotes from the @IDEAfit convention to help you feel like you were right there in the action, too.
